Today I'm reviewing Friction by Sandra Brown.
Summary from GoodReads: A Texas Ranger, relegated to deskwork due to past recklessness, petitions to regain custody of his five-year-old daughter, and his case is assigned to a family court judge who is as attractive as she is ambitious. When a masked gunman barges in during the custody hearing with his sights on the judge, the Ranger reacts instinctually and goes after him. But authorities apprehend the wrong man, and the real gunman remains unknown, at large, and a threat. Will this take-charge lawman jeopardize his chances of custody by going after the would-be assassin? And will this unlikely pair be able to deny the forbidden attraction building between them?
Review after the jump!
Review: Thank god this book has saved me from my suspense reading slump. Sandra Brown has written some great romance and mysteries in the past, so I was hopeful that Friction would be the shot of suspense I needed. Thankfully it was, the characters were well developed and the plot was adrenaline filled. If anyone is looking for recommendations of what to read next some of her standouts for me include: Unspeakable, Standoff, Exclusive, Adam’s Fall, and Led Astray. Verdict: Highly recommend for fans of mature suspense novels.
